Hello friends! Allow me to introduce the newest member of the Allspice Abounds household: Batty! I took a class at Gather Here back in October from the fabulous Martiza Soto herself (creator of the incredible Soto Softies, of which I’ve been a huge fan for many years), and I finally had some time to finish this little guy over the long Thanksgiving weekend. I love love LOVE how he came out! : )
This is my second softie and first time trying one of Maritza’s patterns, and all things considered, I think it came out pretty well. The ears are going off in different directions, but this just adds to the charm of the finished piece, right? Click below for lots more photos!
Many thanks to Maritza for her fabulous pattern, in-person instruction, and patience. (And truth be told, I was completely star-struck meeting her. She is truly a crafty rockstar!)
